I just wanted to know if there's anyone on this forum who can't tolerate the oral 5-ASA's such as Colazal, Pentasa, Dipentum but rather can take and benefit from Rowasa enema's?
I took the 5-ASA drugs about 4 years ago and they caused me severe watery diarrhea and probably made my UC worse than it was. My doctor now wants to try Rowasa, thinking that it might not affect me the same way. Just wanted to know if anyone else was in a similar situation?
I am having a flare up again of my symtoms, the usual blood, mucus, going to the bathroom about 6 - 8 times a day, urgency. Doctor wants to try something else in order put it into remission, looks like I should give Rowasa a try.
